Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Take what others tell you with a grain of salt and test your own bright ideas with careful analysis to avoid wandering off in unproductive directions. The Moon's passage in front of the Sun is a reminder to digest thoughts slowly and tap into feelings rather than letting your mind lead the way. Saying less and listening more will prove more rewarding than trying to impress others.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Hold on tight to your purse or wallet with this Solar Eclipse in your 2nd House of Money. A tendency to fall for fast talkers could wind up costing cash, time and energy. It's better to eliminate potential projects that are only okay than to bet the farm on a questionable scheme. Discovering additional sources of income could be good as long as you investigate thoroughly before investing.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A New Moon in your sign kicks up fresh energy and provides the initiative to start projects. However, because it is also a Solar Eclipse you may have to take some steps backward before you can successfully advance your interests. Give your mind a rest and tune into your feelings to see the whole picture. When emotions are ignored even the brightest ideas may fall short of the mark.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Pulling back to re-evaluate key issues could be critical to finding the perspective you need to make good decisions. This New Moon is a Solar Eclipse in your spiritual 12th House of Escape, which is excellent for getting away from it all to see your life in a larger context. Old beliefs may be ready to sail away, opening your soul to new sources of inspiration that can take you even further.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Friends or colleagues may not follow up on their promises with this Solar Eclipse in your 11th House of Groups. Don't take on additional duties in an organization without carefully checking your schedule to see if you really have room for them. In fact, letting go of obligations and individuals who are more distracting than essential to your life frees up valuable time and energy.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
This New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs in your 10th House of Career and Public Responsibility, where your resources may be stretched beyond their capacity. Juggling too many balls in the air slows your progress, so dropping one or two obligations will make you more efficient and effective. Use your discriminating mind to eliminate distractions and focus on essential tasks.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Travel and education could become more complicated with this New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 9th House of Faraway Places and Higher Mind. Making decisions about where and when to go and what to study could be difficult. The key is to reduce the number of options you're considering so you can focus your mind to find the most rewarding ways to spend your valuable time.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
This New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 8th House of Deep Sharing calls for taking a second look at close personal, financial and business relationships. Agreements may need to be reconsidered and renegotiated if you don't feel like you're getting your fair share. Letting go of an investment or emotional opportunity about which you're uncertain is wiser than trying to force it to work.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your personal and professional life could be shaken up by this fast-talking Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 7th House of Partners. Don't allow yourself to be flattered by someone who says all the right things but who has no experience or evidence to back them up. And it's wise to avoid making bold promises yourself because it's too easy to make statements and fail to follow through.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Simplify your daily routine with this jittery Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 6th House of Work and Service. You may be tempted to take on a task that sounds easy but winds up being more complicated than you expect. Prevent yourself from dividing your attention to the point where you can't maintain the high standards that have earned you respect of those who know you best.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
This New Moon Solar Eclipse in your amorous 5th House of Love can create more romantic distractions than usual. It's hard not to flirt when you're feeling playful and when others seem to appreciate your bold behavior. However, it's smart to clear the decks of relationships that merely interest your head but don't touch your heart. Let the small stuff go to focus on who and what you want most.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Family matters could get messy with this New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 4th House of Roots. Several minor issues could build up to a point where you feel overwhelmed by them. The good news is that most of these domestic matters can be set aside without causing any problems. That allows you to set your priorities and focus on the tasks that are the most essential to your well-being.
